The real magic on NBC’s America’s Got Talent is the eclectic roster of performers that the show attracts. The music reality competition format is on life support because the talent pool isn’t that deep. Because America’s Got Talent is open to all acts each night becomes a genuine variety show. A dance group followed by a magician followed by a guy who gets hit over the head with things. That’s a night of programming that only one reality show can put together.
Tonight the auditions for this season continue. In a shock to no one even a watered down Howard Stern is enough to run the roost over at the judging table. He’s already used his golden button, only available once a season, to save an act. He’s the King of All Judges. He’s also the only judge who ever looks put off by the performers. Anytime an act forces the judges to go outside means a sour face on Howard. He’s the only one who gets disgusted with performers wasting time on stage. There are moments that the radio Howard pops his head into the show, but most of the time we are dealing with “America’s Judge”. The banter between Howard and Howie Mandel is so enjoyable that it deserves more time on the air.
Here’s the promo for tonight’s all new episode of auditions.
